Cetina participating in the campaign of the Adriatic in 1538 and the Franco-Spanish quarter in 1543-1544, military companies that are combined with entertainment under the princes of the Marquis Molfeta or Vasto.a is the dimension of the European poet-soldier who joins with others this author Italian poet of the imperial era: Garcilaso, Hernando de Acuna, Diego Hurtado de Mendoza … Along with that dimension Cetina embodies the American adventure, where you end. On business in 1544 with an uncle, and when he went to Veracruz to take on some money to send Castilla “, a disease that kept him in Puebla of Los Angeles (New Spain), where a ” in a haul itself the swashbuckling comedy-is seriously stabbed in the darkness and error, as a result of which died in 1557. However, since Pacheco writes that “his death ai various opinions.” The stay in Italy Cetina provides direct knowledge of poetic language emerged in the shadow of the great Petrarch and the revitalization of the classics. “If you put an intention to force a ” writes Fernando de Herrera, as the softness and purity … Fabrizio Freda has similar goals.

And next to him, another poetic world in Cetina also has a role: the Epistles, halfway between the news media and cultured family, which features a lively world often chaired by the satire. The best surprise comes Cetina sometimes as in the sonnets “As hard notched a figure”, “As good pitches on land having”, “AAY delicious illusion, dream soft!”, “Sweet, tasty, clear stream,” “This walk and turn, go and become” “Love moves my wings, so high” … The rest of the work of Cetina, though uneven, does not reach the spontaneous simplicity of the madrigals. His songs are saved by a ductile musicality like that of the sonnets, and in the Epistle to Hurtado de Mendoza are fragments which appears a strong moralistic point, often cited when discussing the moral history of the Epistle to Fabius.
